Rich taste and caloric richness aren't necessarily synonymous, particularly when it comes to great giblet gravy. At Thanksgiving, when gravy's role is to anoint, moisten, and add an elegant layer of flavor, it can do so lightly. Prepare the gravy base ahead; when the turkey is roasted, skim the drippings judiciously and use them to finish the gravy ― dark brown from braising or amber-gold with mushrooms ― in minutes.
